Parking charges in car parks owned and managed by Tewkesbury Borough Council have been suspended with immediate effect.
The move is in response to the Covid-19 restrictions put in place to protect the NHS and save lives. People should only leave their homes to collect food, for health reasons or for essential work.
It is hoped that by suspending parking charges in council-owned car parks in Tewkesbury and Winchcombe, people will find it easier to access the food and health care they need locally whilst restrictions on movements are in place.
It will also help residents who are now required to work from home and don’t have parking facilities. Those with parking permits will be compensated for this suspension.
Charges will initially be suspended whilst the Government’s current measures, in respect of Covid-19, are in place but this will be kept under review.
Remember that the advice is to stay 2 metres away from others, so please leave adequate space between cars when parking.
The payment machines will be covered over with immediate effect
